This place has a very huge selection of wines, liquors, and beers.

I like that I don't have to buy an entire sixer of a beer just to try it.

People were very helpful although I did not require much help. People knew about their inventory and were eager to help.

The selection was huge and I to calm myself down and not buy everything. There are a whole bunch of cali brews, stone, alesmith, etc. and west coast offerings as well.

Everything seems to be pretty fresh and the prices are decent. Seems to be 50 cents more per item than bevmo, but then again, you can't buy singles out of sixers from bevmo.

This spot is perfect to grab some good brew or some quality food/liquor or even cigars. Their beer selection is high quality and they have an entire walking in chilled room with a great selection of beer. All the times that I've been in the employees are extremely helpful, and one employee really helped me out with my home kegerator issues and answered all my dumb questions with eagerness and genuine concern for me getting the keg flowing correctly.

Definitely recommend if you are in the newport area/costa mesa area and need a quality spot to stock up on beer.

Great place that I would highly recommend to anyone in the surrounding area - very accessible from the 55 fwy.

Service was good, but not overly pushy/hovering. They have a great selection of glassware.

Most importantly, the beer! Big wall of coolers and a crazily-stocked walk-in that is loaded with domestic and imports. Also, being able to break into 4s or 6ers to purchase a single is a fun twist and lets you try new stuff that would only be offered in 6 packs elsewhere.

Great store...I'll be back!
